Ms. Kate Dodson, with ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc., PO Box 100360, Anchorage, Alaska 99501, (907) 265-6181 states that the purpose of the project is the expansion of the Alpine Airstrip to decongest and accommodate safe maneuvering, loading and unloading of aircraft at the existing Alpine airstrip apron. The proposed work is the placement of 14,250 cubic yards (CY) of fill material into 1.3 acres of jurisdictional Palustrine emergent wetlands to expand the existing Alpine airstrip apron. 14,000 CY of clean gravel fill material would be placed within a 263’ x 166’ rectangular area (these are the top of pad dimensions, wetland impact dimensions would be 299’ x 174’). The proposed project is needed to reduce congestion and accommodate safe maneuvering, loading and unloading of aircraft at the existing Alpine airstrip apron. An additional 250 CY of permanent erosion protection will be placed around the perimeter of the pad expansion during the first construction season to provide protection from a flood event. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-6), dated October 15, 2019. The project site is located within Section 32, T. 12 N., R. 5 E., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Harrison Bay B-2; Latitude 70.3471º N., Longitude 150.93107º W.; approximately eight miles north of Nuiqsut, Alaska.
